Laine’s cross-disciplinary visual art practice includes installation, sculpture, drawing and digital design. Through the creation of real and imagined spaces she invites the viewer to examine pre-conceived assumptions by blurring the lines between the known and unknown.
Reclaimed materials or found objects, are the means through which she maintains a passion for sustainability and the repurposing of consumer waste. More often her artworks are ephemeral and reflect upon the impermanency and unpredictability of human experience. Laine’s works often take the form of unexpected interventions. Central to this idea is the way in which we approach, experience and imagine space as it is in the built environment and in the landscape.
Laine’s practice includes engagement with local communities and groups. She has completed three community art residencies and has participated in numerous public art festivals and projects. Since her graduation with a Masters in Fine Art in 2011 (Art in Public Places), Laine was awarded an Australia Council Art Start Grant for emerging artists in 2012.
